This comprehensive text on cardiopulmonary physiology is a translation of the second edition (1958) of the German text by the same authors. It is divided into four major sections; a discussion of normal respiratory physiology, a description of pulmonary function testing, a discussion of abnormalities of respiratory physiology in general, and the pathophysiology of specific clinical conditions. The authors have covered the fundamentals of clinical pulmonary physiology in a systematic manner, admittedly from the point of view of the Zurich school, which considers arterial blood gas composition to be the most significant parameter of pulmonary ventilation. The book is written
